Sunday Stitching, Cooking and Napping

I finished up my winter table topper. It is pretty ho hum but I'm glad I did it.

I tried to make the quilting look like the wind swirls in the fabric with limited success.

I ended up just machine stitching down the binding.

I thought that quilting it on the frame might be tricky because of the shape but it was no problem.

This and that about Jezebel:

Her muzzle continues to fill in. She is even getting some whiskers back. We had a wasp inside, earlier, and she had a ball chasing it. Her right eye is weeping a bit - the same one that watered just before we discovered the melanoma. Makes me nervous but she isn't sneezing and snorting so she probably just has a cold.

Due to the time change, I was up at about 5:00 this morning. I also just ate a bunch of tomato dumplings - my favorite comfort food. It always knocks me out. I am sleepy so I'm going to go take a nap.
